Always "Santa" for us in Scotland since the 1950s at least. Father Christmas was/is regarded as English. Who cares?

Sorry but I think this might be one of the reasons I don't use this Forum as often as I use to. Look at the thread title please.

I dont know if mine is an earlier one as the tag on mine says 320 Lumens not 180 as in the web page. Mine is VERY bright and lights up a large area.

The good feature of this lamp is the very wide beam pattern if you want to call it a beam, could be useful if you have to work on some thing in the dark eg a puncture or some other emergency

I have emailed them see what they say


I emailed them and they came back today saying that the 320 Lumens is correct not the 180 lumens as on their website.

Now I have had time to use it, it could be a very useful bit of kit as its beam is about 150 degrees so lights up a broad area just what you need to do some work?

Dental implants. Having seen the bill, I wouldn't dare ask for anything else, and I don't really need stuff for my bikes at the moment, fortunately.

With an impressive set of stitches in my gums, I'm currently instructed to 'avoid physical exertions' - although I did sneak out for a gentle spin yesterday. Looking forward to having the crowns put in place in a few weeks time. Should put a Hollywood smile on my face :D :D

I got some coal!

But Santa had subcontracted it to the coal man who brought it round a few days early. He wanted paying for his trouble too! :shock:
